2face Idibia: The Husband, Father, And Singer (INTERVIEW)

By Joy Abobi | News Reporter on April 6, 2014

They are one of the sweetest celebrity couple in Nigeria, you already know who they are, don’t you? We all  love us some 2face and Annie Idibia.

You could agree they’ve been through a lot of things that would shake any ordinary couple and bring them to their knees, but they are no ordinary couple. Their love has stood the test of time and even marriage hasn’t dampened it.

So you wont be shocked when a little jealousy comes into play after all the rumours and baby drama threatened to tear them apart. but as they say ” True love conquers all”.

The handsome beau 2face Idibia in a recent interview shared a lot of personal details about his life as a married man and fatherhood.

He said: “She loves me. So she must be jealous. If I am laughing with a particular girl too much or I am going the way that I am not supposed to go, or if one girl is following me too much, she will be there to caution me. She definitely has to be protective of her man. At that point, she can tell such a girl, ‘hold your side!’ And if it is I that is doing it, she could tell me, ‘cool down, I dey here o.’”

Addressing the recent rumor where he allegedly impregnated a banker, he said “of course it is not true. Initially, nobody said whether it was true or not. So what I did was to correct whatever impression from my twitter page. But the story still went on.

“It is a serious matter because now I am married. So it is unfair for anyone to put out such story about me, perhaps because they want to sell their medium or sell their blog. It is really totally unfair to me, especially now that I am married. If I wasn’t married, we would have laughed over the matter. But now, I am. So I do not expect that people will play over such issues of emotion at this time of my life.

Idibia said it’s not easy coping with fame: “It feels good, but it is a lot of challenges, a lot of non-privacy. So many things are being flung your way, temptations, and if you are not careful, you get swept off by the evil tide. There are so many hazards in being famous and if you can’t control yourself, you get carried away within a short time. It is not all smooth- sailing. I can tell you that it is not all glamour.

“For instance, I enter into an event, a place and I walk straight to go and find a seat for myself to sit. But before I know it, some people will take it personal.

“Meanwhile, if someone else does it, it is seen as normal and accepted. So when I enter a place, I have to move around first and greet people. That is why you see me say ‘I hail o’ each time I enter a place. But you know, it is not all the time that you are in a good mood to be so friendly. But because you are famous, whether you are in a good mood or not, you have to put on a smile and greet people. Else, if you do not do that as a celebrity, such things will make you to easily make enemies. You actually make enemies without even realizing it. That is the crazy part of being a celebrity and a famous person.”

Speaking on the joy of his marriage, he said, “So far so good, married life is cool. We don dey do wetin married people dey do. We don dey sidon together, we go laugh, we go quarrel small (laughs), we go come hold each other again as if no be us quarrel some moments ago. Life has been kind to us since we got married. We have been living happily ever after.

“We try to live our lives our own way. We have never had cause to introduce a third party in our home. When we have a problem, we sort it out between ourselves. We don’t call anybody in to come and solve our problems for us. We sit down and talk about it. Like I said earlier, sometimes, we quarrel when both of us are stubborn over a matter. But we do not involve a third party!”

On why he chose Annie over every other girl, he said,“I have been fortunate enough to have met a couple of nice ladies in life and two of them even have children for me. But I think that Annie and I understand each other more. As with matters of the heart, it is very difficult sometimes to find the right words to explain it. Somehow, you just know that this is the particular person that you want to stay with.”

The singer said he relates well with his other kids and their mothers: “If you see me and my children together, you will think we are mates. That is how I relate with them. I relate well with their mums too. We are good. We are peaceful, everybody is mature. We have a cordial relationship. One love always…”
